The Vault Design Store

The Vault design store was founded by current owners Sarah and Philip Solaris with the vision of showcasing the best of New Zealand creativity alongside quirky international design products. We travel the world to search out exciting products and work closely with the creative community in New Zealand. We specialise in unique gifts, kiwiana, beautiful home wares and contemporary jewellery. Fair trade and sustainable products, packaging and gift wrapping are very high on our agenda.

Since 1991 we have witnessed and been a part of a phenomenal growth in the quantity and quality of what New Zealand designers and craftspeople are producing. We feel that New Zealand creativity is unique on the world stage. As a mirror of our multicultural society, it is an inspiring demonstration of how we draw on a vast array of local and international elements to forge a unique identity as a dynamic design culture in our own right.

The Vault is an environmentally conscious organisation. 75% of our goods are made in New Zealand so the carbon miles that have gone into their transport is minimal compared with imported goods. We work with our artists and suppliers to encourage them to use biodegradable packaging and we use paper bags for your gifts in store. We seek out products that have good eco credentials like jewellery made from recycled glass, ceramics (made from the earth!) and up-cycled products such as toys made from blankets. We feel that we as business people need to help lead the drive for a pollution-free, sustainable world.

The first Vault was established in the centre of Auckland's fashion district. This subterranean space is located on the corner of High Street and Vulcan Lane in what was the derelict basement vault of the first ANZ bank in New Zealand, hence our name. Today we have three stores in NZ, two in Auckland (Ponsonby & Takapuna) and one in the heart of Wellington. Come and visit our store and enjoy outstanding customer service, an array of New Zealand jewellery, art, design, and beautiful gift-wrapping and smiles.
